L is for... Lucas, Jennifer

Jennifer Lucas was a member of the crew of an acid mining operation. This had been established in a medieval ruin on an island off the south coast of England. The work was so dangerous that the crew made use of Gangers - replicas of each of them composed of a living organic substance known as the Flesh. They even had the same memories and personalities as their originals. When the Doctor and his companions, Amy and Rory, visited, a solar storm caused the equipment to go awry. The Gangers became permanent individuals. Rather than face destruction as temporary beings, they decided to fight for their right to exist independently.
The Ganger Jennifer killed her original but pretended to be her. She befriended Rory and attempted to manipulate him into helping her destroy the other humans. She showed him a Ganger waste pile. He only realised he was being used after it was too late and Jennifer had sabotaged the mine workings.
She mutated into a bizarre travesty of a human being  and began  killing humans and Gangers alike. The acid in the mine exploded and destroyed the building - killing the Jennifer Ganger.

Played by: Sarah Smart. Appearances: The Rebel Flesh / The Almost People (2011).
